International Experience Inspires Global Business Ideas And Opportunities

Chairman and CEO, Transformation, LLC.

Changing the world for the better is a subject on the minds of many individuals and business organizations at this time. The pandemic has caused many of us to realize that the ways we live our daily lives and how we travel and use the earth’s resources could be matters of life and death; and we see more clearly now that pollution and climate change, the pandemic and even social injustice are arising from procedures in the laboratory that we call Planet Earth.

Travel is a source of inspiration as well as a furnace for burning precious resources. And as an additional dimension, travel has been, throughout human history, a catalyst for cultural change.

Travel As A Catalyst

In human history, the travels of Alexander the Great, Marco Polo and the New World Explorers were all preludes to migrations and cultural chemistry that

US, China, India, Europe can’t save global economy from recession

  • During the financial crisis, two countries kept the global economy from cratering even further than it did — China and India. 
  • Unfortunately this time around — in the economic crisis caused by the corornavirus pandemic — no country is coming to save us.
  • India has been on lockdown for months, and China is still feeling the debt hangover from the credit binge it went on to skip the financial crisis.
  • This gives us all the more reason for Washington to pass another coronavirus aid bill as soon as possible.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.


While the global health crisis gradually loosens its hold on the economy, firms small, large and everything in between are beginning to double-down on marketing efforts and get back on steady footing. 

In the past few months, businesses have been forced to get to grips with a dramatic change in working conditions, buyer sentiment and consumer engagements, leaving some firms struggling to adapt. In particular, businesses with a major B2B focus have been hit hard, because many of their clients are also struggling and prospecting for new clients via in-person events is a thing of the past — for now.

Coronavirus Erodes Countries’ Economic Resilience; Global Insurance Gaps Widen

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to reduce global macroeconomic resilience by about 20% in 2020 from 2019 levels as stimulus packages deplete countries’ fiscal and monetary buffers around the world.

At the same time, the combined global protection gap for key perils is reaching a new high.

According to the latest annual Swiss Re Institute resilience indices, the UK, Japan and the U.S. will experience the greatest falls in resilience among major economies. Switzerland, Finland and Canada remain the world’s three most resilient countries, reflecting their comprehensive economic strength against future crises.

Global economic resilience held up in 2019 compared with 2018, but the world entered the COVID-19 crisis with less shock-absorbing capacity than before the global financial crisis of 2008-09, the last major economic downturn. The Swiss Re Institute Macroeconomic Resilience Index (E-RI) for the world stood at 0.62 in 2019, against 0.61 in 2018.

Key findings:

  • COVID-19 is
